We can not change the cards we are dealt in life, Just how we play the hand.
I do not see a disease or a condition when I look at you.
I do not see a disability, difficulties or problems.
I see your soul. A happy, carefree, determined, fearless, clever soul who has opened up my heart to a love that I never imagined.
Don’t be sad that I am blind.
Im far from sad.
I didn’t lose my sight.
I was born without it and I will never know any different.
You don’t need eyes to see the beauty in the world.
Everyday I sense it.
I touch it, I smell it, I hear it, I taste it.
I feel love, happiness and joy every single day.
The challenges I am sent make me strong and ready for the world.
Don’t be sorry I am blind.
You do not need sight to have vision.
The Norrie Disease Foundation funds animal workshops – visually impaired children may have little opportunity to touch and feel different animals and therefore, compared to their sighted peers, may have a more abstract or less realistic understanding of animals.
